    Curtailing IPC Authority

    By loop i meant a step that IPCs may have to take to be Heads. Akin to the Vaurca avowel. This is being discussed but we are working on something that will not be frustrating to existing or future synth head aspirants.

    Tau Ceti Truth

    Broadcast 287 Dorn Staff Revealed: Dorn Is Shell Plant Hey there truth seekers. From the heart of Tau Ceti to Mars or wherever you are, this is TCT's Pulsar 2 Pulsar and I’m Zee Strauhm. [Intro theme] Z: We’re live here in our studio with Stacy Stewart, former intern in Joseph Dorn’s administration. Stewart is here to discuss the truth about what happened to Joseph Dorn on February 17th, 2459. The official story is that Dorn was intercepted by Admiral Frost and held in captivity, giving a speech offering the unconditional surrender of the star nation to the invading forces. And only a week later, Dorn is rescued, shuttled off to Elyra, then comes back defiant and proud of himself and presides over sweeping reforms that liberate IPC’s. That’s the official story. S: You forgot how he was rescued. Z: Ha, you’re right. Dorn was rescued by the Synthetic Liberation Front. You know, the radical terrorists. And after this rescue, Dorn’s entire platform suddenly swings. I think you said earlier you noticed the personality change. S: Yeah Strauhm, I did. When Dorn came back on March 6th he gave his big speech and surprised everyone. He was suddenly very pro-freeing the synthetics. Overnight he just had this big pro-synthetic agenda. Z: Right after being rescued by SLF members and shuttled off to Elyra - but there’s no time tables about that. S: Yeah! Everything was so messy while Sol was in here - the soldiers never told us anything. Then suddenly the SLF just hand us the president back and go ‘here ya go!’ the President is just talking all the SLF talking points. I’m sure he made it to Elyra, and I’m sure he made it onto the shuttle coming back from Elyra. Z: And you said there were some mysterious circumstances about the trip. S: Yeah well you see there are no official logs about the President’s flight from Elyra to Tau Ceti. he just showed up like ‘surprise’! All we have is their leaving and exit. And the thing is, the logs show a passenger manifest of the President and like 6 SLF members. Then Dorn gets out, and only 5 SLF members get out. I’m just saying it wasn't Dorn that stepped off the shuttle when it landed in Tau Ceti. Z: He was replaced by a shell during the flight? S: I definitely think he was. All the signs are there. When we got back to the office his mannerisms were all different. It’s a bunch of little things that no one would ever think about individually but put together I saw it as clear as day. It just hit me. Z: What changed? S: For one, after a week I realized I never saw him eating. I’d see food in his hands or like a bag of take out, but I never saw him actually in the process of eating. Drinking either - he was such a huge fan of Dr. Gibb, but after he came back from Elyra he just, never asked for it. And during office meetings he’d stare at the power outlet on the wall like he was hungry. And not only that - he always had this peppermint breath because he loved those things and during meetings he’d offer them to everyone but he stopped doing that entirely. I asked him one day if he had any peppermints and he just looked at me funny. And he never showed up to the vice president cook-out that happened on the Aurora. What, you’re too busy to show up for your candidates cook out on a research station? Give me a break. He didn’t show up because robots don’t need to eat. Z: Wow, such subtle changes. No one else would have noticed. S: You are absolutely right. It isn't just the policy changes - it’s the personality shift. He can even do math crazy fast -- without paper. He took some of the interns out to a burger joint and he figured out a 17% tip on a 36.82 credit meal in under 6 seconds. And I swear when he blinked there was a little whirring sound in his eyes. Z: I think we’ve proven pretty decisively that whoever that is in office isn’t the real Dorn. So tell me about the bigger issues: his policy. S: This shell, which is a plant, has been pushing greater synthetic rights in Tau Ceti. But that’s just level 1 on this conspiracy iceberg. It goes a lot deeper, Strauhm. Because, suprise suprise, the longer this shell is in office, the more government officials start acting weird too. The Governor of Phoenixport, Mindy Donald, I also noticed doing crazy stuff when she visited. And all the congressmen too. Three of them, when they came in, I saw these tiny little marks on the backs of their necks. What I think is going on is that the SLF is using the access and power of a shell Dorn to kidnap members of our government and implant mind control implants into their spines. They use these implants to turn more of our government officials into sleeper agents. Z: Wow. To what end? S: I think it’s pretty obvious. The Vaurca queens have an alliance with the SLF as I think you know. So to secure this alliance, when the SLF implants all members of our government they’ll activate the chips all at once and turn every member of government - from congress to the interns like me - to mind-slaves of the Zo’ra. And when that happens, we’ll be completely helpless. They’ll be able to walk all over us. Z: Wow. This is explosive information. Do you feel safe telling us all of this? S: The shell that took Dorn’s place already tried to silence me. I was fired for ‘misconduct’. I was trying to bring in powerful magnets to run over the so-called Dorn to see if he would react, but it tripped the sensors and they grilled me for hours and told me I was no longer working for this administration. Z: You are a real truth seeker. You heard it here folks - President Dorn is a synthetic shell. The powerful cabal that dominates our star nation holds truly unthinkable plans for us and our families. We may have to face a future where we are forced to work for powerful slave masters. What a dismal world we may face. Thanks for coming onto the show Stacy! S: No problem Zee. Z: We’re going to take a quick break after a message from tonight’s sponsor: Getmore Holiday Specials. When you need the perfect gift for that special someone, Getmore of it from Getmore. Getmore: Where you get it all. Z: After the break we have a 2 part interview with Doctor Addler. The first part will be a discussion on the geopolitical realities facing Tau Ceti and the economic and political turmoil hitting the alliance. In the 2nd half Addler will discuss his theory on how the lottery is a Vox ploy to trap time travellers for the purpose of harvesting their Null Spirit Karma. Stay tuned, truth seekers. [Outro theme]

    Curtailing IPC Authority

    I talked to the OP. I do agree we need to do 2 things: 1) Have an easy visual cue as to whether an ipc is free or not. Potentially bringing back tags to mark their status as OWNED or FREE. This will make it immediately apparent the status of IPCs and making it clearer for both sides who falls under what regs. This is a firm goal of mine. 2) Discuss a loop to go through such as the vaurca have. This one is no promises as to what form it takes or if it does, but we will see what to do without being too reactionary. @CakeIsOssim

    Tau Ceti Truth

    Broadcast 281 Skrell: Ratajani In Disguise Hello everyone. This is Majhurl Rhazjul, the new host of our latest show, Tajara Truth Hour. Our truth, your television. [Intro jingle] Have you ever wondered why people complain about your body odor despite you knowing you bathe every day? Do you wonder why you stub your toes so much despite having memorized your entire house and having drawn detailed schematics of furniture placement to avoid these accidents? Do you wonder why your credit card is declined despite the fact you only missed three payments several months ago? And, dear viewers, he wants to ask: Did you ever wonder why these all happen after you criticize the skrell publicly or even in your dreams? This one was brave enough to ask, and in his investigation he has come to a remarkable, EXPLOSIVE conclusion: Ratajani which torment Tajarakind are Skrell in disguise which participate in the largest infiltration campaign in the history of the galaxy. Just think about it: Tajara are by all accounts superior to Skrell, but everywhere you look in the galaxy there are Skrell holding the puppet strings. This is not a conspiracy, it is the facts of life. ‘But Razjul’, this one can hear you saying, ‘What do they even have in common?’ Guess what. EVERYTHING. He has made this chart to show how it is everything. As you can see, the Skrell have more in common with the Ratajani than they do differences. For our human viewers, Ratajani are Short, ugly, stump-tailed greedy and the reason for why small bad and unlucky things happen. Throughout our history they’ve spoiled milk, let out livestock, making you bump your toes or suddenly become stinky, or stole all of your pelts. They are ugly caricatures of Tajara both because the Skrell disguises are not perfect, and because Skrell think so low of us that they would not demean themselves by looking just like us. They think Ratajani are more handsome than true Tajara! Why is it that references to Ratajani start to become popular in the 100’s, the very same century that the Skrell claim they first entered space? Why is it that when reading and writing began to spread on Adhomai in this time, these libraries mysteriously began to burn down or were destroyed? There’s no explanation that stands up to scrutiny - the Ratajani are responsible. And if the Ratajani are responsible, the Skrell are responsible. You see, the Skrell have since ancient times in Adhomai used their power to travel to Adhomai as they travel to their planet of Srom. They saw our species and both feared our potential and envied our planet’s bountiful natural resources. So Skrell disguised their evil agents as Ratajani. They burnt our libraries, let out our livestock, stole our kits for evil experiments, and did all manner of ills. Go back to the charts: Skrell are the same height as Ratajani. They both smile when they see a Tajara in pain. And pelts and livestock mysteriously disappear around them. Not only this but it is a FACT that Ratajani were seen by various Tajara on Adhomai to be chewing on sea weed in the lakes and oceans. It is time to WAKE UP. Skrell have for a thousand years now been keeping Tajara down. Just look at the FACTS for understanding how powerful Skrell are: The Skrell were able to convince the imperialist Alliance to invade Biesel, for humanity too is under their control. The Skrell were ALLEGEDLY able to defeat a Lii’dra queen when they invaded Elyra despite how unrealistic the mission details were to right-minded thinkers. The Skrell executed a citizen for a prank about Glorsh, their so-called despot AI, to silence them. Skrell businessmen and idols make frequent trips to the New Kingdom of Adhomai, where photos prove they spend their time skiing and ice skating, showing how they think they own Adhomai. It is time to wake up. We need to realize that the skrell are shape-shifting into Ratajani to suppress the potential of Tajara and control the galaxy. We’ll discuss more about this after a break from our sponsors. [Outro Jingle]

    On Security Transparency During Crises

    I always explain an emergency to the beat of my characters own understanding and provide advice to travel in groups of 2. My announcements always say to avoid the gunmen instead of sheltering in place. Quite a few times command gets angry, which always weirds me out. A good policy. +1

    LOOC White/Blacklists

    Ive had ooc disabled for 2 years now and for the same amount of time ive had looc disabled because im personally not interested in comments from observers or ghosts. Having this ability would let me filter these channels without a total mute. Otherwise itll stay muted for me. Ahelping snarky or crude jokes in looc or ooc is a waste of time. Its easier to ignore them with a mute.

    Hadii Summons Earthquake To Knock Entire Mountain Down: "Adhomai Itself Will Devour You" 13.12.2460 A photograph of the incident. A large ravine now sits where the mountain once was. The People’s Army Corps of Engineers has announced the utter destruction of a major rebel citadel deep in the Rhazkjara Mountains, far north of Ron’tul. The seemingly peculiar choice of spokesmen for the offensive is made clear by the ingenious method used to destroy the citadel. The shock waves were felt as far as Shungsta and the ruins of Ron’tul, where residents reported feeling enough shaking to jostle items on desks. The PCE used a previously classified weapon to produce a magnitude 9.8 earthquake by artificial means. Colonel Arjzau of the People’s Special Weapons Initiative described the weapon used. President Hadii later made his own announcement to take ownership of this new weapon. The destruction of the major rebel stronghold has opened the possibility of a large northern offensive that many military officials say will sweep all the way to Quizosa. “We’ve severed the artery to Quizosa and the reactionaries in the city will succumb to starvation within months,” a military official said. Within the People’s Republic responses have been almost all positive in regards to the weapon. “Her sister was a helicopter pilot destroyed by the rebel’s tornado weapon,” one woman told our journalists, “she is glad we are sticking it back to them. She only wishes it killed more of them.” “Nature is not for Tajara to control,” said one dissenting Brother of the Suns, “we must not dabble with such power. It is too destructive.” “He thinks it is fine since it was a military target,” said a dock worker from a town outside Castle Vladis, “He would only feel guilty if it hurt innocent people.”
